New finish for my Mossberg 500A

Anybody have any good tips on which DIY finishing product to use on my old Mossy? It's currently "camo'd" with an ugly green on black. I'll upload pics later. I would like it to Be a rust proof finish, so not blued... And I would prefer a camo pattern of some type, or a solid flat dark earth, coyote tan, foliage green, etc.

I've heard about DuraCoat, but that's about it. Haven't heard good or bad about it...

Thanks for the help in advance!

There are mainly two finishes I'm familiar with, Duracoat and CeraKote. Here's a quick overview written by Shelley over at Gun Nuts:

Hope that helps some.
